At the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Centre in Mumbai for a meeting and found that the hotel was beautifully located on the shores of Powai Lake, in the northern part of Mumbai.

I took a tuktuk to the other side of the lake to look back at the Renaissance…

There weren’t many species of birds but there were quite a few of the same species….crows were everywhere and there were lots of cattle egrets, etc.

If you happen to be at the Renaissance it’s worth while taking a look at the bird life on Powai Lake….
